Freshly Made Sketches 79

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

This week at Freshly Made Sketches, Rita has given us a sketch that seems straight-forward but I found to be a little tricky.  I'm sure she didn't mean it that way (right, Rita?), but tricky is what I saw.



To complement the sketch I was inspired by the current Muse challenge which features a card designed by Ardyth Percy-Robb and features a lot of circles.  I wanted to incorporate circles onto my card where the scallops on the sketch were and got it in my head that interlocking circles would look pretty cool.  In the end I think they look like the Olympic rings gone bad, but what do I know?  Here's Ardyth's very cool card:

Uber cool, Jen. I can't even imagine what you would create if you didn't find a sketch tricky, considering this one rocks both challenges!!

Gorgeous card, Jen! I love how you cleverly used the circles for one of the elements of the sketch. Great colors and a beautifully clean card.

I think this is great Jen! It actually reminds of a sketch I have in mind that is based off of some presentations I saw when I was at the IBM conference last October. Your card looks fabulous!
